SourceForge having problems again?
June 28, 2006 Leave a comment
Back after a break after attending SpringOne in Belgium and a spot of travel, a company conference etc.
Yesterday noticed that the support forums for JTrac have disappeared. Yikes! Promptly raised a support request on SourceForge.
Today morning, all the SourceForge summary, stats and admin pages were down for a while. Now it is up but the forums are still not there. Fortunately the project web-site and Subversion access have been working all along.
From the “browse support requests” area on SourceForge, it looks like I am not alone. There are folks raising all kinds of scary problems! “My Account Disappeared!”, ” URGENT! Developers removed from project”, etc.
It would be nice if the SF.net guys release a mailer or mention something on their blog or the site news page, but nothing so far. I remember a lot of ranting recently about a CVS outage on SourceForge, what is going on?
[Update 2006-06-30: the forums are back *phew* but other things are down intermittently like the stats page. Subversion is fine which is the most important thing I guess.]
